if it happens over a short period can you run with just 1 PC connected directly to the modem and see if you any issues with that one PC
if you do then you know its the modem/line/ISP and have eliminated the router
which also means you should contact the ISP and get them to test the line
I've connected the desktop directly to the modem on my prior post and it seemed to run fine but wasn't on it for a long time, I'll have to try this technique when no one else is using the streaming internet signal, this house is run on the internet.

I'm thinking trying to disable DCHP like you posted earlie might be the best next step to produce results but I'm not knowledgeable of how to do such a thing.

Side note: I'll be on vacation from now until the 9th. Ill still check back to see if anything else has been thought of

It only has 1 port. Yes it is solely to connect the other devices in the house other than the hardwired desktop which is right next to the router and modem.

Did you manage to try just the modem ?
it would help eliminate the problems
also the status of all the lights on the modem and on the router - do they change

Look at your O/S. Are you using Windows 7 home or professional. Professional will fix many of your probems.
